Principle 1 of our Constitution describes how his ultimate purpose for the business was to balance the happiness of all its members, through their worthwhile and satisfying employment in a successful business. He believed that because the Partnership is owned in trust for its members, they share the responsibilities of ownership as well as its rewards – profit knowledge and power.
Today we still work towards his goal and have created three Commitments to help us bring Principle 1 to life.
The Commitments are three statements which cover responsibility, relationships and influence and describe what it means to be a Partner. They are a description of the experience a Partner should have working in the Partnership, in the same way as our commitment to quality, service and value describes the experience a customer should have.
